I worked today August, 15th. It’s my birthday but it’s also a Thursday and someone’s gotta make the money. On my way into work I got my free Caribou Coffee (campfire mocha!) which helped ease me into my work day.
I took the day off from running since my tempo run went so well. I generally take the next day off after long runs, and after my speed workouts. It seems to keep me injury free. So today I worked out for an hour with my boss & my friend Matt. We did a TRX workout which was much harder than i thought. TRX was developed by a Navy Seal and If you’ve never heard of TRX suspension training you might have seen these yellow things before…
I found that it was very low/no impact & you can adjust through the whole workout to make things harder or easier depending on your fitness level. I plan on taking a TRX training course in the upcoming months and I will definitely talk more about this in the future. Whenever I find a different way to cross train I get excited, especially if it doesn’t involve an elliptical. <– least favorite piece of equipment of allllllll time.
Got a pair of Yurbuds, finally.. I’ve been rocking plain ol’ Apple earbuds, and yeah they bounce around and fall out. Yurbuds claim they will not fall out, let’s hope these work! Also got a pair of Oakley Confront purple sunglasses (no picture cause I’m sure there will be plenty in the future). And I’m signed up for the Cosmic Run 5K this October. This is like the color run, but with fluorescent colors, black lights, loud electronic music & it’s at night. Can’t wait to shake my butt through that course!
Any upcoming races for you guys?
